Im in NH and we are expecting our first frost this week and the leaves are already changing. My guess here is 3 weeks left for mowing. Then fall clean up.

Western mass, mowing usually ends mid October, and we're knee deep in leaves at that point.

In Southeastern Michigan grass can continue to grow right into November. It depends on the year. Last year I cut grass up to the 2nd week in November, then it snowed.

I can usually keep mowing until the first or second week in Nov. Then I wash and put everything away regardless and have leaf work until just after mid Nov to finish, providing it doesn't snow like it did a few winters back. I had to finish the leaves in Jan when we had a few 50 degree days that melted away all the snow and ice, and allowed me to get the rest of the leaves cleaned up.
